Everything That Rises Comes To Life


Rudolf Steiner:  “It is simply nonsense to imagine that life is built up from dead substances through chemical combinations. Life comes out of the ether-filled universe...it is precisely the dead substances that are derived from the living, are deposited by the living.... The living exists first, and only afterwards comes the dead. The ether surrounds us and it draws everything upwards, just as the Earth’s gravity draws everything down. It draws upwards, but it does not bring death as gravity does...the more that upward forces prevail in us, the more living we become.”


"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."  — John 17:3
